With grant support from the Kigali Cooling Efficiency Program (K-CEP), IIEC has been collaborating with governments, businesses and industry associations in Pacific Island Countries (PICs) to demonstrate efficient and clean cooling technologies, and innovative business models to enhance awareness and promote greater adoption of clean cooling technologies. A call for proposals was launched in January 2019 with applicants from Palau, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu were the grant winners.

IIEC has partnered with the United for Efficiency (U4E), a global effort under the leadership of UN Environment to support developing countries and emerging economies to move their markets to energy-efficient appliances and equipment, to implement the 3-year GEF funded project, entitled “Delivering the Transition to Energy Efficient Lighting in Residential, Commercial, Industrial and Outdoor Sectors in Pakistan”.

IIEC has been contracted by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) to support the implementation of activities related to the Thailand Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Action (RAC NAMA) project.  Specifically, IIEC is responsible for providing technical assistance to the Department of Alternative Energy Development and Efficiency (DEDE), under the Ministry of Energy, Thailand, in development of a proposal for the establishment of a chiller testing facility in Thailand, and delivery of recommendations on enabling effective implementation of mandatory energy labeling in Thailand.

Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) and International Institute for Energy Conservation (IIEC), endeavor to implement a new project complementing the ongoing activities by SDC on Energy Efficiency in India, focusing on the “Integration of Renewable Energy in Buildings”. The broad objective of this project is to design, showcase and monitor building integrated renewable energy technologies suitable to local conditions. The renewable energy technologies will be applied at different types of buildings, which is currently given a major push at the government level in India. The project will contribute to various global processes in the areas of climate change mitigation, urban development, and resource efficiency improvement.
